CBD-infused candles are a fairly recent addition to the candle craze, which may help you unwind, switch off and achieve better sleep.

It’s well known that different aromas evoke certain emotions, which is partly what makes scented candles so popular – they make us feel good.

But CBD candles can offer an array of additional health and therapeutic benefits, containing safe and natural ingredients that can be lit in any room to achieve a wholesome feeling. 

One of the common misconceptions about CBD is that it has intoxicating properties, as it is derived from the cannabis plant.

This is not the case as THC’s non-psychoactive counterpart, CBD contains all the plant’s health benefits, without the unwanted high.

Although it still has some stigma attached, CBD oil actually provides a range of therapeutic benefits.  

A study at Cannabis Radar found that CBD oil promotes a balance of mind and body, helps release stress, and aids relaxation.

CBD is known for its anti-anxiety and de-stressing properties, even helping with mood enhancement, making you feel serene, sensual and helping towards better sleep.

Other cannabis-based candles on the market include those infused with hemp oil, which contains 0-0.3 percent THC.

Hemp oil is ideal for helping promote relaxation, while also being one of the most sustainable materials on the planet.

CBD candles come in an abundance of scents, with tones often carefully mixed to create a sophisticated fragrance, some with a subtle hint of hemp.

Candles create an ambience to any room, they look great as a decorative piece and add a cosy touch to your space. 

However, the benefits of burning candles don’t stop there.

CBD candles are a great entry option into trying out the potential benefits of CBD products, without the need to ingest them.

When struggling to sleep, lighting a CBD-infused candle may help you unwind and ease anxiety due to its calming and soothing properties.

After lighting, the oil from the top of the CBD candle can even be used for massaging to achieve some of the other benefits of the cannabinoid (make sure you do this safely, and wait until it has cooled enough).

The extracts of CBD in the oil may help relieve chronic pain and reduce inflammation due to its interaction with our body’s endocannabinoid system.
